Workshop: Staying Connected with Your Teen
Staying Connected with Your Teen provides dedicated time in a comfortable setting for parents and caregivers of preteens and teens to explore their relationship with their child, learn about some of the factors that impact that relationship and healthy adolescent development, and develop concrete skills to build and/or maintain positive bonds. In addition, parents develop tools for helping guide their child safely through adolescence into adulthood.
During the five two-hour sessions, you will find support and community and learn about the changes happening in your child’s body and brain so that you can better understand why they do what they do and how you can most support them during their transition to adulthood.
What you’ll learn:
· Skills for increasing communication and decreasing conflict
· Ways to bond with your teen
· Strategies for preventing high-risk behaviors
· How to involve your teen at home in problem-solving, decision making, and responsibility
Participants benefit from hearing other parents’ experiences, gaining perspective about their child, and problem-solving ideas for their own home.
“Since I started this class, I have found my children opening up more. There is still more work to do but i’m opening the door instead of yelling and punishing. I’m gaining their trust. Great class!”
“Really good insight. Every class I made a connection to my home life.”
“This was a great program and very knowledgable. The topics discussed taught me a lot and I have used and shared your knowledge with my family and peers. Thank you. This was great and very helpful. This has helped define how I approach the good and bad.”
“Frank discussions with a feeling it’s safe to discuss.”
